The average of the atomic masses of isotopes for a given element.
A large mass of igneous rock that formed when magma was emplaced at depth, crystallized, and subsequently exposed by erosion.
A sedimentary rock composed of rounded, gravel-size particles.
A type of volcanism that results from the eruption of magmas derived from the partial melting of ice.
The process by which water vapor is changed directly to a solid without passing through the liquid state.
The temperature to which air has to be cooled in order to reach saturation.
A center of high pressure characterized by anticyclonic winds.
A tropical cyclonic storm having winds in excess of 119 kilometers (74 miles) per hour.
A soil lacking horizons.
Meandering channel that flows in a steep, narrow valley. They form either when an area is uplifted or when base level drops.
An isolated mountain remnant characteristic of the late stage of erosion in an arid region.
Depressions created when blocks of ice became lodged in glacial deposits and subsequently melted.
Mixed tidal pattern
A tidal pattern exhibiting two high tides and two low tides per tidal day with a large inequality in high water heights, low water heights, or both. Coastal locations that experience such a tidal pattern may also show alternating periods of diurnal and semidiurnal tidal patterns. Also called mixed semidiurnal.
The path of a body in revolution around a center of mass.
The process by which most igneous rocks melt. Since individual minerals have different melting points, most igneous rocks melt over a temperature range of a few hundred degrees. If the liquid is squeezed out after some melting has occurred, a melt with a higher silica content results.
Hardened lava that has retained the vesicles produced by escaping gases.
The abnormal rise of the sea along a shore as a result of strong winds.
A coast with a form that is largely the result of the partial drowning of a former land surface either because of a rise of sea level or subsidence of the crust or both.
A layer in the atmosphere of limited depth where the temperature increases rather than decreases with height.
A pyroclastic rock composed of particles that have been fused together by the combination of heat still contained in the deposit after it has come to rest and by the weight of overlying material.
